Alfa 156 2.4jtd

Hello from Spain!!

My name is Jose, I live in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands while on business travel a lot by the Iberian peninsula, now I am in Madrid.

I tell you my story a bit, I've had many cars and this is my first Alfa Romeo 156 is a Phase I 2.4jtd besides also I have a fiat bravo 1.9 jtd, bmw 328i and a e36 coupe.

2 months ago I bought the car crashed by 500, the previous owner broke his collar clutch, and ended up breaking the envelope of the gearbox.

I started to repair it, and after a futile search of the gearbox in scrap yards, I found one of a 1.9jtd, which is outwardly the same, the only thing that changes are internal developments, also mounted a ceramic clutch and restore several pieces such as suspension, I rode a sport bilstein with springs Novitec-4cm, and some wheels mille miglia action in 17 "with Hankook Ventus tires in 215/45/17.

And I keep thinking of more things to put right now I'm turning to adapt a double din screen by changing the dashboard hehe.

I hope to learn much in this forum.

Sorry for my English, it is painful ...

Alfa 156 2.4jtd

Been a long time since I showed up at this forum, however since that day, I made some modifications that I'd like to share:

First, I changed the wheels for a model TP Bahrain, 7.5x17, not like I finished and went back to change for a Koya in 8.5x18 with 225/40/18 tires.

On the other hand, I modified the exhaust system, emptying the catalyst, and making a straight line ending in two duplex terminals 90mm devil.

Inside the car, I bought all the leather camel color, from a SW, with whom I had some problems when adjusting the rear.

For now that is what my pocket has allowed me, but I have in mind to mount a CarPC with a program that can display at any time of diagnosis and measurements of pressure and temperature of engine components.

For that I am thinking of adapting a Lilliput 7 "on the dashboard, and move the air into the ashtray, eventually suppress the latter.

All this with parking sensors and a camera that is activated by engaging the R.

On the other hand, I would like someone who could change the setting of a 2256V Garrett, I explained how, since because I have seen bears the internal wastegate and I'm afraid to break the turbo ...

Here you have some photos, hope you like it and my sincere congratulations for this forum
